Just early voted in Harris County, Texas.

I'll just give the facts of what I experienced in the polling location I went to.

I arrived about 7:55 am. I was one of about 120 people lined up outside the building. I was one of the younger voters. I'm 44. I did see about 7 people who seemed younger. Four definitely were younger with 2 of them being first time voters. They announce to everyone when a 1st timer is voting and everyone claps and cheers! I thought that was great.

My district is red, but our county is solidly blue. The people in line were pretty representative of my area in my district. Our district is stupidly gerrymandered. It stretches from the northeast Houston area suburbs all the way into the Montrose area of Houston proper. It's totally designed to negate the votes of Montrose. At least that's my opinion.

All in all, it took about 35 minutes to get in and out. Now I'm just looking forward to November 3rd. VOTE!

1. Were they mostly wearing masks?

3. Yes.

I didn't see anyone without a mask. It's probably because the county still has a mask order in effect.

4. I keep thinking mask wearers are Biden voters. I could be wrong

5. And also,

Hand sanitizing station was available and they had little finger covers to use when you electronically sign after they check your ID, and when you use the voting machine.
